Our Story

Z. Makled, Owner, Curator & Candle-Pourer

From my home to yours! 

Hello! My name is Zeinab Makled, the founder of This Little Candle Co. and a Detroit Native. I am married to an amazing man, Hussein and we share a beautiful Siberian Husky named Bane! I have an MBA in Business with a concentration in Human Resources! I started This Little Candle Co. in November 2019 to do something better for the environment and society when I realized how many toxins are released in paraffin-based candles with zinc-core wicks. I envisioned the health benefits of soy-based candles to be safe around adults, babies, pets and the environment and to help destress away with the use of various essential and fragrance oils embedded within the soy wax.

Each scent is curated and inspired my own experiences and handpoured by me to immediately radiate a calming, unique blend once the cotton & paper centered wick is ignited. TLCC provides 100% organic soy candles that are chemical free, in reusable and recycled jars, environmentally safe, biodegradable and poured in my home, for you to enjoy in yours! 

 

Here are some benefits of purchasing from us:

  • All of our products are made with 100% soy wax. 
  • All of our wicks are cotton, with paper core to enhance and extend the life of your candles. 
  • All of our products are scented with only the highest quality of esential oil and phthalate-free fragrances. 
  • All of our jars are made from blown, recycled glass and are reusable once finished! 

Thank you for your support and I look forward to enhancing your home with aromatic scents and candles!
